באש ובמים - עם ישראל חי

Singer Avrohom Fried writes about the fires burning in Eretz Yisrael the words of a recent song come to mind.  ( listen to song below)

כשהקלטתי את השיר הזה, מילותיו של הנביא ישעיהו ריגשו אותי בעוצמתם, אך לא ידעתי עד כמה יהיו רלבנטיות יום אחד בארץ הקודש. "כי-תעבור במים איתך-אני, ובנהרות לא ישטפוך:  כי-תלך במו-אש לא תיכווה, ולהבה לא תבער-בך." (ישעיהו מ"ג)
המלב"ים שואל על הפסוק הזה, מדוע הכפילות? במים/בנהרות", "באש/להבה". ועונה שם, כי ישנם שני סוגים של הצלה. יש הצלה בדרך הטבע. במצב בו ה' יתברך שומר על האדם שלא יתקרב אליו המזיק. אבל יש גם הצלה ניסית, כך שאפילו אם יהיה במקום בו יש אש ומים, הטבע שלהם מתבטל ולא מזיק לו 

 ואנו עומדים משתאים מול הניסים הגדולים ב"ה לעמנו, מול החוסן של עם ישראל ביום הקשה הזה,

Whats on sale?



Letter: Looking for info on the Lakewood- Manhattan commute

Dear Fellow Lakewooders,
I am a Lakewood resident who recently got a job in Manhattan. I am new to the commuting schedule and have no familiarity with Lakewood-Manhattan busses. If anyone can provide information and contact info for such daily transportation between Lakewood and Manhattan, both ways, it would greatly appreciated. Also, if there is information about davening Shacharis, that would helpful. 
Also, perhaps readers can advise whether it is better to take a bus than to drive myself, and what the cost considerations are. Other helpful info would be with regard to driving to the end of Jersey, parking somewhere there, and then taking a train into Manhattan, and whether that is a viable option.
Thank you and tizku l'mitzvos.

"They confiscated my property and shouldn't be trusted," said Levy, who lives in Lakewood, New Jersey. "I will never use their services again." AP 
The story was first posted on DansDeals where Google has suspended the accounts of users for violating its terms and conditions. Several people who recently bought Google's new Pixel phone on behalf of a New Hampshire dealer are now suffering that punishment after the company detected their online purchases and judged they violated its terms of service.

Lakewood Trump vote, irks the "elitists"

They know better. It didn't take long for the elitists and leftists among us to wag the finger at the Lakewood community for their support of Donald Trump. Trump got 72.9% of the Lakewood vote, Clinton: 23.8%. An op ed posted on Cross- Currents website just cant understand how we had the chutzpah to vote with our own minds and not listen and cow tow to the narrow mindedness of the holier than though sophisticated self appointed aristocrats. How do we as a community vote for a menuval for a person whose public persona is that of a bully etc. To quote from the op-ed: 
"the far greater concern is the outpouring of Orthodox Jewish support for Trump. It is reliably reported that seventy percent of the voters in Lakewood supported him and there are statements in the names of leading Roshei Yeshiva supporting him". 
How can we not listen to these know it all elitists? Others joined in to, even the Blogging Beach Rabbi was shocked, he was crying! The article continues:

There needs to be an explanation as to why a people who are commanded, Kedoshim Tih’yu, embraced a person who just about in every way possible has been the antithesis of sanctity. It is no answer or explanation that Hillary

“Bingo” a Kosher Costco Concept opens in Boro Park, plans for Lakewood area store

Ger Rebbe son
As reported back in March HERE “Bingo” a Kosher Costco Concept which has stores in Israel under the Osher Ad label opened its first store in the USA. The Brooklyn store is located in Boro Park at the former Pathmark location at 60th street and 13th avenue. A report in Koshertoday.com says the store will target the price conscious buyers. "Although the store will be huge and spacious, it will target the price conscious and the bulk buyers, especially the many large families in the area and beyond. Industry sources told Kosher Today that the store, to be called “Bingo” has already negotiated mega deals with kosher manufacturers, including several who agreed to private label for Bingo. The store is set to have a Costco (without the membership) look rather than the appearance of the numerous high-end kosher independent stores that currently dot many Orthodox neighborhoods"

Lakewood kids rejoice with Trump win, no more whole wheat bread

A Trump victory was good news to many Lakewood kids but nothing to do with politics.
Parents, Rebbeim, and moros were having a hard time with kids not eating school lunches as the kids refused to comply with  regulations implemented by first lady Michelle Obama. The menu calls for whole grain whole wheat bread and no white or rye bread. According to a report the New school lunch standards implemented as a result of First Lady Michelle Obama’s anti-obesity campaign have led to more than 1 million children leaving the lunch line. The kids hope with a new president the good old lunches will be served.

Matzav reports The gun-toting lunatic, said to be of Hispanic lineage, barged into Shoe Palace, located at 6951 Route 9, next to Athena’s Diner, and told everyone to get down as he approached an employee and demanded to be given all the money in the cash register.

Kids walking after dark from clustered bus stops, get those reflectors out

The clock change means lots of Lakewood kids will be dropped off from school after dark. Unlike previous years in Lakewood were students were dropped off closer to their homes, this year, for many kids, its a longer trek back home from the bus stops. The LSTA has clustered bus stops in certain areas in order to maximize routes and efficiency, but this will now add to safety concerns with thousands of children walking a longer time after dark and crossing busy streets. Additionally, some routes with younger children will first get to their stops after nightfall since these routes run late. Schools plan on having safety talks with students, making sure they wear reflectors and are accustomed to the time change.
 A safe trip to all Be''H.

Shivti Chaburos begins winter limudim

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome back all those chaburos that will be beginning their limudim this week. The limud will focus on the concept of Meleches Machsheves - the idea that in order for an action to be considered a melacha, one must perform it with the intent and desire to achieve the result of that melacha.
